How It All Started

Where did you meet your husband? In our home ward, but never spoke to eachother till he got home from his mission and we first spoke at a party at our friend Tina's house
What was the first thing you said to your husband? Yeah. We're engaged. (In answer to his question about the boyfriend I had before Sam left on his mission.)
Where was your first date? Sam took me out to dinner at the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica.
Where was your first kiss? At Aaron Corsi's house, before our first date...he tricked me into kissing him.
Did you have a long or short courtship/engagement? Is 6 months from first kiss to wedding day long or short? Actually, I think it was more like 5 months.
Where did you get engaged? No big story, Sam started talking about it like after one week of dating, proved he was serious two months later when he asked for my dad's permission and called the temple to reserve the date. I tease him about it though, 'cause when he gave me my ring he started with "I already know you're going to say yes...will you marry me?"
Where were you married? The Los AngelesTemple.
How did your reception go? We loved our reception!!!! Family, friends, beautiful decorations (thanks Deana),great food, dancing...what more could we've asked for? We still talk about how much fun we had.
How was your honeymoon? So much fun!!! We took the four day cruise to Catalina and Ensenada. The only thing that would've made it better was if it lasted longer.

Fun write-up! I soooo remember that "era". Remember when you slammed the bathroom door in my face because of my oh-so-naive comment??? It was about the time you were ready to break-off your first engagement. Did I ever apologize for being such a dork? If not, sorry! I am so glad everything worked out well for you guys. Ahhhh, sweet love!

Okay, I totally have no memory of this. I slammed the bathroom door in your face? I don't even know what you are talking about so I am obviously over it. It is like this time of year that year started dating and we reminisce all the time. Ahhh, the beginnings, those were fun times!!! Thinking about all the fun we had together back then really makes me miss the Mortensen sisters and that wonderful little apartment on 8th Street.
